And this morning, I collected the 1st long green beans: 450 gr!

And we got this lovely harvest, a few days ago:


3 lovely smaller yellow courgettes, 1 bigger Summer leek, some cut away Asian lettuce leaves, some white chard & 2 Chioggia beets! We mostly peel them, cut them into wedges & roast them int the hot oven seasoned with black pepper, a fruity olive oil, some black pepper & some sea salt. Mingled with clean hands & put into the hot oven for aboutΒ 30 minutes on 200Β°C. Yummy! The interior is lovely white & pink multicolored & these beets are a bit more sweet too. Just look,…lovely, hey?

We also stir fry the leaves & stalks! πŸ™‚ Very yum!

And we look again to the beautiful interior of these special more sweet-like beets! πŸ˜‰

Cool right?

Tomorrow, I will give you a lovely recipe where I roast these beauties in the hot oven & make a lovely vegan dinner with them & with black kale too. πŸ˜‰

      We grow them in our plastic conservatory, with the doors closed! πŸ™‚ We only have 2 plants that are still growing a lot of flowers & aubergines! πŸ™‚
